High Quality Sealants in South Jordan, UT
A sealant is a tooth-colored or clear plastic material that Dr. Maymi applies to the chewing surfaces of premolars and back molars, where tooth decay may be most prevalent. Sealants help to prevent tooth decay by creating a barrier over the chewing surface grooves and pits, effectively sealing out the germs and food that can cause decay. Dr. Maymi recommends having sealants placed whenever permanent teeth erupt, from age 5 to adulthood. The sealants are placed on any teeth without cavities on the biting surfaces of the tooth.
